Merissa was just seven years old when she decided to pursue her dream of being a children's writer. Over time, that dream has expanded to pursuing three niches in writing: children's stories for middle grade, blogs and magazines for families and parents. She loves crafts (all mediums), learning, working with kids and families, creating videos, writing and searching for new ways to see the world.
Merissa has been a nanny/ babysitter for more than 11 years for more than a dozen families. She has worked with parents to help organize their family life and get every member the things they want in their day. She has written on the Moms Magazine Blog, Hub Pages and her own personal website.
In December 2012, she was published in a book of anthologies entitled "Trust Us; You're Not the Worst Parent In the World." In February, 2013, she also released her debut children's book "Kindergarten Mishaps."
In the future, Merissa plans to continue to work toward her goal of writing in magazines and on blogs for children and their families.
